The ABC’s of SPCP Membership

The SPCP does not “complicate” membership with various levels of technician membership, titles, or requirements. If you are an SPCP member, you are one of ours; it’s as simple as that.

It is not required that you are trained by particular permanent makeup trainers, certified by us, or to be in the industry a certain length of time. Anyone may join who agrees to the SPCP Code of Ethics.

The SPCP Trainer and Supplier members adhere to the highest standards and requirements of the industry. These standards are self-imposing being that these members are the ones developing them so as to continually deliver the highest quality education, services, equipment, pigments, and supplies available to the industry.

Walking in concert with simplicity, the ABC’s of SPCP membership are:

A – Administration and the Board of Directors

The SPCP is a professionally staffed organization. The administrative lineup is impressive and there to serve the needs of our members. Administration reports to the Board of Directors, which is comprised of elected permanent cosmetic professionals who serve the membership for term periods. They collectively and continually review the demands of the industry and how our members can be best served.

B – Benefits

The benefits of SPCP membership are innumerable.  Included are significant discounts by top industry suppliers exclusively for SPCP members.   Administration and the Board of Directors periodically review the benefits package for our members to ensure collaboration on important educational event structures, products offered, publications provided, networking opportunities, Subject Matter Expert contacts, and a host of other benefits our members enjoy and depend upon.

C – Permanent Cosmetics Certification

Permanent Cosmetics Technician Certification is a critical element associated with professional permanent cosmetic services. The general public, regulators, and those in related industries recognize professional certification to indicate the permanent cosmetic (permanent makeup) professional demonstrates sound fundamental knowledge. Having been tested against their peers, these highly regarded professionals are proudly displaying their CPCP credentials as a mark of distinction.
